In Life They Really Never Had A Chance
Found dead in a shipping container in Wexford far away
Their deaths like their lives so tragic sad to say
They spent what little money they had on their passage from poverty
But their promised new life they did not live to see.
They died in their coffin ship out at sea
How tragic for many life and death can be
Born in the wrong place and due to circumstance
In life they never really had a chance.
And though they did not live to see the foreign shore
They will not have to worry any more
About trying to exist from day to day
Right till their end for them 'twas a struggle all of the way.
From their life hardships their end brought a release
And may they rest forever more in peace
Those poor homeless souls who died so tragically
In a shipping container on the Atlantic sea
